The stamp set called Celebrate Sunflowers and its coordinating dies called Sunflower Dies is another bundle from Stampin’ Up!® that is on sale for 20% during the month of March. This stamp set is beautiful but also it also has a world-wide meaning right now. The sunflower is the official flower of Ukraine so everyone is posting cards, artwork, banners, etc in support of the Ukrainian people.
Also during the month of March, Stampin’ Up!® has released a new suite called Waves Of The Ocean. This suite includes the Waves of Inspiration stamp set, Waves Dies, gorgeous Waves Of The Ocean Designer Series Paper, Blue Foil and Rhinestones. I decided I was going to pair some of the products from the Waves Of The Ocean Suite and the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle.
I cut the sunflower using the new Blue Foil Papers. It is hard to see in the photo but the foil is just beautiful. The pack includes a navy, turquoise and silver piece of foil. I used the navy foil for the inside of the sunflower and the turquoise color for the edges. I did the opposite on the leaves. Here is a close up of the flower where you can see some of the shine.
After cutting out the parts of the sunflower, I adhered them together using Multipurpose Glue. I find this works best when using foil. I layered the flower on a piece of the Waves Of The Ocean Designer Series Paper. In order to save some of your gorgeous paper, I took the piece of the navy foil that I had cut the sunflower and leaves out of to use it behind the Designer Series Paper. You can tell there was something cut out of it at all.
I foiled the sentiment using a hot foil die from Pinkfresh Studio.
